Re: Yet Another Dumb Way to Pass Time (Music Related Again)

FWIW, I'm not checking everyone's lists or shitting on Shirley/Dave, but making mine made me recall a LOT of music that I listened to in college, which would include a LOT of Jeff Buckley's Grace. That was a "get stoned and put the album on repeat" night more than once and I graduated in 1996, so he...

Re: Swampcrash 2020 - NIT Tournament Bracket Challenge

What are we doing? Picking who we think will win the matchups? March Madness style? Exactly right. Just go through the entire bracket and pick each matchup (as if it started with the Sweet 16). You get points for each correct answer, escalating each round (2, 4, 6, 16). The prize will be a "real" p...

Re: Yet Another Dumb Way to Pass Time (Music Related Again)

Jeff Buckley died in 1997 and Hallelujah was on Grace (released in 1994). Shenanigans abound already. Where is the commissioner in all of this? Why has he not made a statement and sanctioned this egregious act of blatant cheating?? Buckley did have an album (Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk) re...

It’s been as many years since the release of Gung Ho as it was between the release of the movie and the end of the post-war American occupation of Japan. "My boss. He major fuckhead!"

Spotify is really anti-artist and I only justify it now due to several years of minimal purchases and the knowledge I’ll still purchase what I really like.

Not really. Could technically be considered assault and I imagine there might be laws on the books about mishandling firearms though I wouldn't know about that. Still seems unlikely they'll face any legal jeopardy.

Think I’d rather have the third overall pick than Erik Karlsson for the next 7 years at $11M/yr. As much as the Sens get bagged on they’ve done a great job acquiring prospects and draft capital.

It’s a great movie and it is sexist in a way but I think Clarice is in on it. She knows she’s been used but goes along to further her career. So it’s also empowering in a way.
